The Automotive Shop is the place where we learn the 
skills necessary to work on cars. It teaches us to take 
on responsibilities, to work out problems, to be rel 
workers, and to test and use various automotive eq 
ment. Most of all the Automotive Shop gives us th 
experience we need to cope with the working cone 
of the outside world. 

rough this program we learn what goes on inside 
gine and how it works. We also study different p

Business Data 
Processing 




Our class was the first to complete four years in the 
Data Processing Program. Many changes have occurred 
and we have managed to survive them all. 

In our Freshmen year we were introduced to Mr. Lib- 
bey, who left in our Sophomore year to be replaced by 
Mrs. Barron. We also had the privilege of breaking in a 
new teacher, Mr. Kelcey. He, Mr. St. John, and "Mrs. 
Mag" have been with us all four years. We were noted 
as the craziest class ever to enter the shop. During our 
"four year sentence" we have gone on many field trips. 



M^6. Maqna64Ci 



Our most memorable trip was to the Bershire Bank in 
Pittsfield. On the way to the bank both cars got stuck 
in the snow. All of us got out of the cars and pushed 
them to safety.

Food 
Service 



ood Service is one of the most important shops in 
the school — we prepare the lunches! It is a four year 
program in which we are taught the basics of nu- 
trition and proper meal planning. We are given the 
opportunity to prepare and EXPERIMENT with new 
and unique types of food in one of the most modern 
kitchens. Practical work experience and good public re 
lations are gained by working in the Tea Room which 
is open to the public two days a week. We all look 
forward to someday serving the graduates of McCann 
Tech.

Student 
Council 

The Student Council was unable to hold the annual 
Field Day in 1977. This Administrative ruling put a 
damper on the Council's spirit. However, in an effort 
to sponsor a school activity, the Council presented 
"Winds of Change," a local rock group, in a dance that 
was held in the gym on November 20, 1976. Over 200 
students and guests attended and enjoyed a great even- 
ing. The Student Council was also responsible for the 
"Winter Ball" (complete story and photos on pages 76 
and 77). 

Student Council meetings on the most part were de- 
voted to interesting discussions concerning school spirit, 
other activities (many of them being refused by the 
Administration), the dress code, and the smoking issue. 

The Council's advisor Mr. Guettler, who has been ad- 
visor for the past three years, was supportive of most 
student efforts and was instrumental in arranging many 
activities. 

Student Council officers during the 1977 year were Bill 
Brule, President; Neil Segala, Vice President; Colleen 
Rose, Secretary; and Cat Choquette, Treasurer. 



Student 

Advisory 

Board 

The main purpose of the Student Advisory Board is to 
carry student opinion to the School Committee. During 
1977 the members of this board did not fully exercise 
this power as representatives. By attending one or two 
School Committee meetings at which issues directly in- 
volving students came up, one could observe that mem- 
bers of the Advisory Board, with few exceptions, either 
did not attend or did not voice any opinions. It is ironic 
that this was so since members had nothing to fear in 
voicing their opinions, especially since five unelected 
students were eloquent in speaking against the dismis- 
sal of Mr. Flynn at the April meeting of the School 
Committee. Also, many students of the school had pro- 
vided direction for the Advisory Board when, a year 
before, they had urged public support on the same issue 
with their letters to the TRANSCRIPT. 

We are hopeful that the events of the past year will 
serve as an example to future members of the Student 
Advisory Board. They must take their responsibilities 
more seriously by informing the student body of School 
Committee proceedings and speaking out when 
necessary.

National 

Honor 

Society 

Members of the National Honor Society will remember 
1977 as an active year. Senior members began the year 
with a toy drive to share Christmas with less fortunate 
children in the community. During the year members 
attended weekly dinner meetings of the Rotary Club at 
the Sheraton North Adams Inn, and at the end of the 
year attended the Rotary Club's annual banquet for 
graduating seniors. The Honor Society also publicized 
the Bloodmobile visit, had a candy sale, and, on one 
memorable Saturday, had a car wash. The proceeds 
from these events provided funds for a scholarship, next 
year's expenses, and a banquet for members and our ad- 
visor at the Springs Restaurant. 

The highlight of our year was the Induction Dinner held 
on April 6, 1977, at the school. Attending the affair 
were parents, members of the Administration, our guest 
speaker, Mr. John Barrett, and Mr. Rowett, the chair- 
man of the School Committee. Mr. Robert Colby, the 
advisor to the Honor Society, was able to attend. Since 
Mr. Colby has been out of school for most of the year 
because of a serious illness, his presence certainly add- 
ed a special meaning to the evening. 

New members who received jackets at the Induction 
Dinner were Glenn Alibozek, Francis Biros, John Bishop, 
Brenda Brown, Beverly Cardonnel, David Dabrowski, 
Susan Daniels, John Levesque, Calvin Rowland, Pat- 
ricia Sheldon, Tammy Therrien, Beverly Wood, and 
Cynthia Wright. 

We are grateful to Miss Bellini, our acting advisor, who 
was very supportive of all the Chapter's activities dur- 
ing the year. 



Pep 
Club 

The main purpose of the Pep Club is to build up school 
spirit. We, as active Pep Club members, attend the 
football, basketball, and baseball games to cheer the 
Hornets on. During the year we sold McCann buttons to 
help defray the cost of megaphones for the cheerleaders. 
Other worthwhile activities this year have included 
sponsoring buses to some of the away games, creating 
several posters boosting our teams, and helping the 
cheerleaders with a bake sale. All of these activities 
were attended by our advisor Miss Flint. As in any other 
Pep Club, our main goal has been to inspire school 
spirit and to increase attendance at school events. We 
feel we have been successful in increasing the spirit 
at McCann.

Sportsmen 
Club 

Members of the Sportsmen Club do everything from fly 
tying to snowshoeing in the swamp. We study the laws 
of conservation and practice ways in which to conserve 
our natural environment. The Sportsmen Club helped to 
build woodduck boxes for local conservationists this 
year. Our club is one of the most active clubs at Mc- 
Cann; we pay dues throughtout the year in order to fin- 
ance our various projects and to have money for our 
annual trip. The Sportsmen Club is an exciting and re- 
warding adventure for those willing to participate. 




Nineteen seventy-seven was the first year that McCann 
had a Ski Club. Under the guidance of Mr. Rivers, our 
advisor, we had a very active year. Over an eight-week 
period, we went to Jiminy Peak and received instruction 
in skiing — everything from beginners to free stylers. 
We were fortunate that snow conditions were really good 
during 1977. Besides getting instruction in skiing, some 
of us were known to have had extra lessons in the park- 
ing lots or on the slopes! All of us in the Ski Club had a 
great year and we'll have many happy memories, espe- 
cially of our days at Jiminy Peak.

The Chess Club is one of the most enjoyable and dur- 
able clubs at McCann — it has survived for six years. 
Under the direction of Mrs. Gilbert, our advisor, stu- 
dents compete against each other to gain one of four 
top spots. At the end of the year, these four then com- 
pete for first and second place trophies. This year we 
had four girls in the club which, incidentally, is the 
highest female membership we have ever had. At the 
end of the year we have a picnic to celebrate the in- 
creased knowledge we have acquired of the game and, 
most importantly, the fun we have had. 




Key Club 



The Key Club — Kiwanis Educate Youth — was estab- 
lished at McCann for the first time this year. We are 
the only high school in Northern Berkshire to have this 
club; and a further distinction was that at McCann it 
was an all girls' club, its membership composed of 
Freshmen and Sophomore girls. 




BRADLEY S. 
LICHT 



The Key Club is a service organization for young people 
enrolled in high school which is sponsored by the local 
Kiwanis Club. The aim of the club is to develop initi- 
ative, leadership ability, and good citizenship practices. 
A further aim of the Key Club is to provide the school 
with many services which would make. McCann a more 
pleasant place for students and to involve themselves 
in community projects for the benefit of the entire 
community. 

Even though we were just "getting off the ground" this 
year, we held a dance, a car wash, and a bake sale, all 
of which were successful. Hopefully, next year we will 
become even more active, and, perhaps, even have 
some boys join our club.

Football 




The 1976 football season proved to be a very 
long and hard one for the Hornets. A 0-8 record 
reflects the anxieties Coach Millard's squad 
faced during the season. The past football season 
was definitely a year of re-building with our 
memories of the '75 season when McCann had 
the best record in football that the school ever 
had. Looking ahead we are certain that the '77 
season will be better — that the team members 
will show the same dedication and enthusiasm 
that past teams have shown. Seniors leaving the 
team this year are Co-captains Ray Bissaillon 
and Bill Brule as well as Kirk Benoit, Brian Lus- 
sier, Scott Garvie, Randy Benoit, Dave Costa, 
Jim Morandi, Ken Randall, John Fachini, 
Cliff Thomas.

Class Prophecy 



"We are now landing at the Domartica Airport. Please 
remain seated until the transport buses connect with 
the plane," said the smiling stewardess, Sue Perras. 

The year is 1987 and we have just arrived in the 
world-renowned, McCann-designed city, which is the 
setting for the 10th McCann Class of '77' reunion. As 
we boarded the monorail, which would transport us to 
the banquet facilities, we see Dave Burdick standing 
outside "Stoner Drugs" of which he is proprietor, talk- 
ing to Gregg Lewis who is getting some inside tips 
from Dave for his new book, HOW DOES YOUR MUSH- 
ROOM GROW? To the right we see someone running 
down the street, .... It's Elaine Allegra still crying, "I 
was sixth in the Class! I was sixth in the Class!" In an- 
other section of town we see Dave Kondel riding his 
Honda, leading the Hells' Angels through. As we con- 
tinue our monorail ride we enter the Industrial Dome. 
Scott Garvie took over Berkshire Screw Machine and 
recently opened another branch here. Rodney Wood, 
who is trying to keep as far away from Scott as possi- 
ble, is the head of the electrical union here. Oh, and 
remember, Rodney, Scott has a job waiting for you any 
time. John Fachini also opened a machine shop and 
manufactures precision yo-yo's. Jeff Klamer is working 
for the E-Z Wider Paper Company,, Gordon Law is the 
wire inspector. Brad Gouger works for ACME electron- 
ics — installing solar panels and is promoting his com- 
pany's products. -- Sorry Brad we only use nuclear 
power. Leo Robert owns his own die shop and is work- 
ing all three shifts. Tim Kopala works for a local con- 
struction company -- Zipperling's. 

Linda McMahon now owns her very own perfume fac- 
tory in Domartica, sampling every perfume on the 
shelf. Scott Decker, we are told, is still looking for a 
job! 

The next dome we enter is the Medical Technical 
Dome. Karen Kordana is giving the hospital adminis- 
trators here some tips on how to run a hospital, and 
who is better equipped to do that than Karen. Mean- 
while, Chris Comeau, the first female engineer in the 
Berkshire Medical Center boiler room, is pointing out 
some of the hot points .... of a new boiler. As we pro- 
ceed orj our monorail ride we enter the Government- 
Education Dome. Let us take a brief look at our edu- 
cational system. Cat Choquette is teaching her little 
Darlings how to play Softball. Joe Dzbenski is head of 
the math department. Joe has taken a lot of advice 
from Mr. Canedy on how to run his class. Sue Louison 
is the City's truant officer. David Lampiasi teaches 
special courses to the deaf and dumb. Allen Brown is 
the defensive driving instructor. Mike Therrien has ac- 
cepted a job teaching under Mr. Sarrouf. George still 
has his little cork. Incidently, Dave Galinski is still in 
engineering school. Donna Zappone is in the same col- 
lege trying to get out. Keep smiling Donna, you'll go 
places! 

Next we visit the government center. Rick Blanchette 
has a desk job and has money to burn. Dave Nassif is 
running from the security guards because Mr. Cho- 
quette hasn't received his 500 words yet. Mike Valotta 
is also looking for Dave. He is the hit man for Don 
Corleon. Mr. Choquette really takes these 500 words 
serious. Kevin O'Neil is in jail — so much for law and 
order. Donna Richardson owns a special liquor store

Basketball 

Basketball in 1977 was a tough year for the Hor- 
nets. They lost many games by just a couple 
points. The team finished the season with a frus- 
trating 5-16 record. Coach Naughton has re- 
marked that with all the new blood in the school, 
he is looking forward to a really great season 
next year. Seniors leaving the team this year are 
Scott Garvie, Ray Bissaillon, Terry Davis, and 
Bill Brule. They, along with the other team 
members, deserve a lot of credit for their efforts 
and dedication this year.

and only sells to minors. Marie DePaoli has a life 
time AA membership and is reforming Donna's custo- 
mers. There's Anne Guest who is a IMarc Officer and is 
trying to pin some charges on Donna. There goes Bill 
Tower, still following the "Weed". By the way, since 
we're talking about drugs, Anne Cichy went away to 
college to be a pharmicist and came back a dope push- 



Now we are entering the Agriculture Recreation Dome. 
First, let's view the farming section. Dave St. Cyr owns 
a plantation in Acapulco and is looking over some land 
here. Gary King is head of the Agriculture Department. 
His most successful crop is cannibis sativa. We also see 
Mike Tanguay inspecting pork chops and ham hocks to 
his heart's content. As we enter the "Combat Zone" we 
see a McCann Hamburger joint, over 97,000,000 sold, 
with Ronald McCann in his striped socks dancing around 
the parking lot with the BURGER QUEEN, Heidi Hoel- 
lerich. 

Moving along we see many familar faces. Claudia Ran- 
dall whizzed by in a new Charger after winning the 
Graveyard Demolition Derby for the 5th consecutive 
year. Speaking of wrecks Dick Brooks is still mending 
porches. Mrs. Less who is attending the banquet is 
spending her spare time chasing David Dellaghelfa for 
his make-up work. Jim Morandi is drunk on the corner 
with half of a six pack left to go. Standing next to Jim 
is Anne LeClair, one of Randy's newly acquired ladies. 
Randy has left the dome and is outside looking for some 
girls in his El Dorado drawn by six white huskies. Also 
outside is Ray Pilling who trains seals for Sea World. 
Speaking of entertainment, Dave Richard is premiring 
at the new Domartica Civic Center. In the fine food 

line Frank Wojnicki owns his own restaurant -- the 

Firehouse. 

As we finally arrive at our destination — the banquet 
facilities — we are greeted by other members of the 
graduation class. Mingling with the guests we discover 
that Bob West has bought out Jimmy Dean's Arco sta- 
tion and Joe Dean bought out West Oil Company and 
they are now business partners. Kevin Dodge is their 
chief trucker. Speaking of trucking, Dave Phaneuf went 
to Tractor Trailer Training School and now drives ship- 
ment trucks for Price Chopper. Ken Randall, known to- 
day as "Tex," is driving the chuck wagon for Purina. 
And would you believe that Cindy Gigliotti has her own 
18 wheeler. Mike McCarron is also in the automotive 
business, he bought out C + L imports. 

People visiting from the Berkshires include Bill Brule 
who is now the football coach at McCann — by the 
way, the football is still BROWN. Anna Lopardo is now 
coach of the girl's Softball team. Miss Flint finally took 
the hint. Tom McShane is home from the service — he 
loves those leaves. Fran Carli, also in the Navy, is fly- 
ing higher than usual as a pilot. Incidentally, John 
Thayer is finally flying — he flys kites for the airforce. 
Corky Benoit is now an admiral in the Navy. Mike St. 
Pierre has taken over Mr. Choquette's job of teaching. 
Speaking of Choquettes, Chris Choquette has finally 
found a place to "PARK" in Domartica. Mike will be 
happy. Bill Monahan returned from Hawaii for* the ban- 
quet. He's been down there since he left school on va- 
cation. Jim Maroni is visiting here. It is a graduation 
present from his parents. He finally graduated and he is 
now head of the Bagging Department at Adams Super- 
market. Steve Daniels is up in arms in Savoy. It seems 
that Cliff Thomas is no longer satisfied with just climb- 
ing trees. He cuts them down, instead, for his lumber

Cheering 



Cheerleading try-outs are a challenge for every 
girl who goes out for the cheering squad. Although 
many students think that cheering try-outs are just 
a popularity contest, the girls have to put in a 
great deal of enthusiasm in order to make the 
squad. This year the football cheerleaders won 
the Berkshire County semi-finals at Lexington, 
MA. Although they didn't make the finals, they 
did their best in representing the school, the first 
time in McCann history that a cheering squad has 
entered competition. The cheerleaders put on 
bake sales and other fund raising events to buy 
megaphones and pom-pomsJH^^^ 

Both the football and basketball cheerleaders 
worked hard to encourage school spirit at the 
games.

liam Lemieux are trying to settle the dispute. Ed Mor- 
an is fighting his own battles -- he started his own 
church. Thanks to Valerie Bushika, the congregation of 
Ed's church has increased 50%. Sandy Mongeau is also 
in the baby business. She has 13 kids. Dave Costa is 
headed in that direction too. He is still slapping the 
make on the "PG's" at McCann. 

We are informed that business is booming down home. 
Michelle Laine is president of the Mark Eden Corpora- 
tion. She is trying to help some of the BDP sophomores. 
We wish her the best of luck. Tim Plankey moves up 
to manager of Taylor Rental and takes on the easy liv- 
ing. Cathy Hebert is also a business person. She owns 
her own used car lot. All cars in the lot are from her 
personal collection. Terry-Lee Davis is repairing rup- 
tured radial tires for Rub's Radial Shop. Brett MacPhail 
has recently become a millionaire by selling time in a 
bottle. Congratulations Brett. Brian Luscier is playing 
at Pfizer. He still hasn't grown up. Brad Licht made it 
to the reunion. He finally got his hair cut and realized 
that he's not blind. 

Clare Hover is not attending. She disappeared myster- 
iously. She was last seen turning sideways. Kelley Oakes 
took time out from her job to be here today. She is 
still after Jim Poirot. Look out, Doris! Yes, Kelley 
proved to be quite the athlete. As did Mike Morin. He 
finally got into pro-basketball. He plays with the Cel- 
tics. Poor Paul Zoito is still dreaming of one day play- 
ing basketball. Just arrived is Pat Girard. She has taken 
over Chris Chambliss's place on first base for the NY 
Yankees. Ray Bissailion is now a running back for the 
Buffalo Bills after taking over OJ's place. Dick Le- 
Febvre is managing the Boston Red Sox. Their record 
is 50 - 1 at the All Star break. Mark Liporace enters 
the banquet incognito. The girls are still chasing him. 
Kris Willette is another late-comer. She was parked 
outside of the Sons of Italy thinking her party was still 
going on. Bill Babeu is in and out ... Dana Houghton 
doesn't want a part in anything. Kathy LaBonte, Cathy 
Leveque and Wanda Wright are also having memory 
trouble. They don't know where they were or where they 
are. Ken Reynolds just arrived in his Blue Ford. We 
don't know how he managed to get this far in it. Cuba 
doesn't know how he managed to live this long. Maybe 
the reunion will be too much for him. 

It is about time we join the festivities, before we miss 
all the fun. Mike Soha and Meil Segala are already 
planning a new city called Dome Marine for the 15th 
reunion. They've used up tablecloths and 5 place set- 
tings in the process. It seems as if all is going well. 
Cliff Thomas, sometimes called coon, is hanging from 
the chandelier. 

Marie Depaoli is obviously having a wonderful time. 
She is waiting in line for the chandelier routine. We 
will now leave you on your own at our reunion. We 
hope you are having as great a time as we are. HAVE 
FUN!!

the baseball team this year. The team finished

of Coach Rivers. This was the best season that 
McCann has ever had. Seniors on the team were 
Terry Davis, Dave St. Cyr, Dave Nassif, Rick

Sally Dupre — Hostess with the mostess at the inter- 
nationally known Sheraton Inn is their top-job inter- 
viewer. 

Stan Lipka -- Is hitting the entertainment circle as the 
world famous magician specializing in coin and pa- 
per money. He also won a contract with MGM as a 
stand-in for Tarzan calls. 

Ray La Bonte — Is now the wealthy owner of Kelley 
Hardwoods in Pittsfield. He also writes help wanted 
ads for the EAGLE because of his experience in read- 
ing so many ads while at McCann. 

George Gay -- Is now a foot doctor after having so 
much experience with feet operations during his stay 
at McCann. He is reported to have sent Mrs. Mullen a 
note advising her to tell the students to put their best 
foot forward. 

Ricky Maruco — Is now a part owner of Green Moun- 
tain Race Track and owns the Captain's Table. The 
word is that he is very strict with his dishwashers. 

John Malloy — Is running a driving school with special 
rates for McCann students. While working on his 
brother's truck he also invented a new way to save 
gas. It is too complicated to explain but has some- 
thing to do with a six pack. 



Class History 



With the world undergoing trying times — the Water- 
gate scandals, new abortion decisions, the Alaskan 
pipeline, inflation at a new peak -- amidst these con- 
cerns there was a bright star on the horizon. From with- 
in this turmoil came forth the Class of 1977. 

We entered the school and took control with a subtle 
touch and plenty of charm. Throughout our four years 
it was nip and tuck — faculty versus students. They 
were at first reluctant to submit to our demands and 
hence developed several new ways to punish us. Some 
of the ways developed included shutting off restrooms 
to prevent would-be smokers from enjoying their habit; 
segregating classes to keep relations between male and 
female students from becoming too intimate; shutting 
down the newly opened student lounge — an attempt 
to keep us on edge — and lowering thermostats to keep 
us awake!!! The list goes on ... 

We Rebelled!!! 

It wasn't until our Junior year that we finally realized 
that the superintendent resided in this school — he 
finally came out of his office! And wasn't that when he 
wanted to eliminate some tenured teaching positions? 
Our principal, whose name will be withheld, but whose 
initials are Peter Cardillo, could never be missed earn- 
ing his money in the school cafeteria. But, Mr. Car- 
dillo, you were only doing your job! On the contrary

Softball 



Girls' Softball began at McCann in 1976 and it 
was continued this year. Game scores do not re- 
flect all the hard work that the girls put into the 
game. Each game was a new challenge, and this 
year the girls improved both mentally and phys- 
ically. The team had some really close games, a 
few of which were lost by one point, notably the 
Drury, Lenox, and Pittsfield games. Unfortunate- 
ly, the girls will not have a chance to prove their 
mettle next year since the School Committee 
has decided to do away with the girls' athletic 
program due to lack of interest on the part of 
most of the girls at McCann.

Ms. Bellini, better known as "Sarge," is constantly on 
the move. Last but not least — Mr. Brookner -- we're 
not going to say anything about you .... Mr. Canedy and 
Mrs. Less really took on a headache when they decided 
to be our class advisors, but we think that if they had 
to do it over again, they would. 

Financially speaking, our Freshman year wasn't too ex- 
citing — we had 35C in our treasury. Our first class of- 
ficers were elected — they were Jeff Klammer, Presi- 
dent; Anne Cichy, Vice President; Betsy LaValley, Sec- 
retary; and Sandy Mongeau, Treasurer. However, in our 
Sophomore year, we established dues and had a fund 
raising activity with new officers. They were Marie De- 
Paoli, President; Anne Cichy, Vice President; Betsy 
LaValley, Secretary; and Pat Girard, Treasurer. 

Our Junior year was really busy. We received our class 
rings — we're sure the Sophomores will remember 
that. Our class was also fortunate to be responsible for 
the Mural in the library. Poor Mrs. Solari! THE WO- 
MAN complained because she couldn't see the flowers 
in the courtyard ... or the sun ... or the trees ... or the 
birds ... or the other side of the building! Well, anyway 
... There was also that nice little publication of poe- 
try, and the following is a sample poem that was very 
popular in our Senior English Class: 

"Administrator! 
Shaking, oscillating, jiggling 
Through the halls 
Principal " 

In our Junior year we (Marie, Cat, Karen, and Betsy) 
hosted the Junior-Senior Prom. It was held at the 
Treadway Williams Inn and the theme was "Remember 
the Times of Your Life." Boy, do we! We had a lot of 
fun though the punch seemed to go very fast and there 
wasn't much room to dance. 

Our Senior year started with our best foot forward. 
Pregnancies occurred — among the teachers, that is 
not among the students (nice change!) Congratulations 
Mrs. Caprari! For the first time also, the first time in 
many years, our yearbook was done entirely by the stu- 
dents -- at least a certain few — and was done almost 
on time. Again for the first time, we were not permit- 
ted to have a field day. We did, however, have a suc- 
cessful candy sale. Because other classes were penal- 
ized for massive skip days, we decided to spread ours 
out over a period of time and do this by shops. We kept 
Detective Mullen busy!! The second annual beer game 
between Drafting, Machine Tech., and Electricity was 
well attended. They actually played!! Our Senior Prom 
was well attended. It was held at the Eagles Hall, but 
more time was spent out in the parking lot than inside 
... wonder why? Our prom theme was "Stairway to 
Heaven" and it was a great evening with the greatest 
of people. Anna Lopardo was chosen queen with Kel- 
ley Oakes, Michelle Laine, Donna Erler and Joanne 
Harpin in her court. The parties after the prom were 
just as exciting as the prom itself. It was just the start 
of many during Graduation Week. 

Here we are today in our green and white caps and 
gowns, remembering previous years when we antici- 
pated this moment from the bleachers. As Seniors we 
have learned, finally, the words to the Alma Mater and 
that the name of the school doesn't have an apostrophe 
in it. 

We are proud to join the ranks of McCann graduates.

The annual "Winterball" was held on February 
21st at the Treadway Williams Inn. The 35 coup- 
les in attendance agreed that everyone really had 
a great time. The evening began with a light but 
delicious meal; and the music, provided by 
WHIRLWIND, a local group, started at 8:15 P.M. 

Neil Segala, vice president of the Student Coun- 
cil, hosted the affair with such flair that it 
seemed it was his own cocktail party! Mr. Guet- 
tler, Student Council advisor, was on hand to 
make sure that everything went smoothly. Other 
faculty members attending were Mr. and Mrs. 
Sarrouf and Mr. and Mrs. Anderson. Because of 
the small attendance, the evening seemed extra 
special and very memorable. 

To top off the evening Michelle Lavoie was cho- 
sen queen. Her escort and the king was Mike 
Therrien. Members of the court were left to right, 
Scott Decker and Michelle Perrier; Ray Bissail- 
lon and Jo-anne Maroni; Michelle Lavoie and 
Mike Therrien; Lisa Tatro and Dave Nassif; and 
Colleen Rose and Joe Dzbenski.

Bloodmobile 
Visit 



The second annual Bloodmobile visit to McCann oc- 
curred on April 4, 1977. Donating blood, in the opinion 
of McCann students is an interesting and worthwhile 
experience, necessary to mankind. McCann has held 
the record for donating more blood than any other area 
high school. Drury, Mt. Greylock and Hoosac Valley 
high schools have at least twice as many eligible don- 
ors as does McCann, but we come through No. 1 every 
time. The Bloodmobile success is due in large part to 
the organization and scheduling by Miss Bellini. 

Many of the Red Cross volunteers have expressed their 
enjoyment at working with McCann students.

The Beer Game 



The second annual Machine Tech., Drafting, and 
Electricity beer game became legend on the 15th of 
April, 1977. The eighteen participants assembled at 
Greylock Field at nine o'clock in the morning. It ap- 
peared that several of the players had already started 
by the time the rest of the gang arrived. The beer of 
various types was stored in three large coolers around 
which we all gathered for the first picture -- a formal, 
sober one ...

The game started and the first team (left photo) took 
the lead, one that would last them six innings. Despite 
Tommy McShane's six consecutive line drives, he 
never made it to first — outfielder Neil Segala caught 
every one of them -- nuf said! 

By the second half of the seventh inning, the score had 
changed from 11-6 to 13-11, the first team going un- 
der — guess they couldn't handle their beer as well as 
the second team could ... or was it because Mark 
"Flash" Liporace was literally out on first base!! At the 
close of the game the score was 17-11, with the second 
team (right photo) winning. 

After the game ... Sunnyside! Unlike last year there 
were no untoward highway incidents a la Tom Mc- 
Shane. After a stop at McDonald's where we proceeded 
to tie up traffic in the parking lot and on Union St., we 
headed on for Sunnyside. We had no sooner arrived 
there when we all took off again due to a false report 
that the cops were after us. We returned to Sunnyside 
and continued to party for the rest of the day. Inci- 
dentally, there is a rumor going around that the veteran 
beer gamers are planning to get a game together every 
year ...

Open House 



The annual McCann Open House was held on May 4, 
1977. As usual the school was crowded with parents, 
students, and friends. Each department was open for 
inspection and other activities included a yearbook 
display in the cafeteria, a "Domartica" presentation, 
school store sales, and the Food Service bake sale. 
Yearbook photographer Scott Decker was also on 
hand to photograph some of the different events go- 
ing on, as well as to capture some of our parents on 
film. 

Also included in this section are some of the typical 
everyday activities that take place at McCann.

'Stairway 

To 
Heaven" 



The McCann Junior-Senior Prom was definitely the 
best prom in the area. The evening started with the 
usual excitement and running around that any prom 
causes ... some of the Tuxes came late, flowers had to 
be picked up, girls complained about how hairdressers 
had ruined their hair ... 

Then it began -- for some couples as early as 4:30. 
Dates had to be picked up, too many pictures had to be 
taken by parents, and then — "They lost our reserva- 
tion!" Since there was no meal served at the Prom, al- 
most everyone who went to the Prom went out to din- 
ner first. Consequently, a number of area restaurants 
were crowded with McCann students and their guests. 
After dinner everyone proceeded to the Eagles Hall 
where the Prom was held. 

The Junior Class deserves a lot of credit for being such 
great hosts. They converted the rather plain hall into a 
star-clustered summer night which clearly depicted the 
theme of the prom, "Stairway to Heaven." The dance 
floor was continuously crowded with couples as every- 
one danced to the fantastic music of "Zarvis-Allen." 

Many of the faculty showed up, not so much to chaper- 
one, but to have a great time themselves! 

Students crowded the parking lot -- especially during 
the band breaks. Everyone had a great time outside -- 
we suspect that area liquor stores profited more on this 
night than they do on holidays! 

The highlight of the evening was the choosing of the 
Queen and her court. After a lot of marching around 
the dance floor by first the Junior girls, and then the 
Senior girls; and much consideration by the judges, Mr. 
Sirard and Mr. Brookner announced the members of the 
court. They were Donna Erler and Joanne Harpin, Ju- 
nior members; and Kelley Oakes and Michelle Laine, 
Senior members. And then, the highlight of the even- 
ing — Anna Lopardo was chosen as Queen. She and her 
escort Scott Decker, who was obviously her King, were 
in total shock as they were congratulated by faculty 
and friends. They were crowned and the girls received 
roses presented by Mrs. Gilbert on behalf of the Junior 
Class.

The Prom -- like any other good evening — ended too 
soon. But don't despair -- the "Techs," who know how 
to have a party, decided to get the word around that 
the party was at the foot of Mt. Greylock; and what 
better way to get the news around than to have the 
band announce it! 

After a quick change all of us were on our way to 
Greylock. Unfortunately, there was a little trouble try- 
ing to find the party because there were so many others 
going on too. After driving all over the mountain, thir- 
teen cars decided to pull into a small field near the 
Resevoir. Boy, did we give the one car "parking" there 
a shock when thirteen cars invaded this privacy! Finally 
someone brought the news -- the party was near the 
"gate" — and, WOW, was it!! The field was jammed 
with cars, a camp fire was started, and the party began 
— and went on ... and on .. and on. Everyone made it 
home during the next 24 hours with little difficulty. 

Everyone who attended the Prom will have fond mem- 
ories of that wonderful evening.

Never Part . . . " 



Class President Marie Depaoli opened the Senior Class 
Banquet by welcoming everyone. The occasion, which 
was held at the Bounti-Fare Restaurant on the evening 
of the 26th day of May, our year. Mr. Canedy, our ad- 
visor, gave the invocation, after which we all enjoyed 
a delicious family-style smorgasbord. Following the 
meal remarks were made by Mrs. Less, another class 
advisor; Mr. Rowett, School Committee Chairman; 
Miss Bellini and Mr. Brookner, members of the Admin- 
istration; and Mike Soha. Faculty and seniors enjoyed 
doing the McCann crossword puzzle, and since Mrs. 
Caprari finished the whole puzzle first, she was pre- 
sented with a centerpiece. Gabe Galinski brought his 
stereo and played some fantastic songs, the favorite of 
the evening being, "It's Over" by Bozz Scaggs. 

Presentation of gifts to our class advisors and to our 
class officers, as well as to members of the Yearbook 
Staff, was followed by the readings of the Class His- 
tory, the Class Will and the Class Frophecy by the class 
officers. 

Mr. Colby was a guest of the Honor Society at the ban- 
quet and the ovation he received was not only because 
of the joy we all felt at having him at our banquet, but 
was also a tribute to his determination in overcoming 
his illness. 

Afterwards over seventy seniors gathered on Mt. Grey- 
lock around a campfire and listened to music provided 
by Rodney Wood. The entire evening was very mem- 
orable, and seniors are sure to look forward to class re- 
unions.

A Time For 

Us . 



Seventy of us will remember forever the fantastic Sen- 
ior Class Picnic. For $4.00 a head, Seniors emptied 
4 1/2 kegs of Pabst and a ton of hotdogs, hamburgs, and 
potato chips. Reynolds Pond in Cheshire was the setting 
for this two-day, sleep-over party on the 30th and 31st 
of May, hosted by Neil Segala and Mike Soha. 

The first crew of helpers arrived at 11:30 A.M. and set 
up the general area. At 1:00 P.M. the ground started to 
disappear as it was covered with Seniors. Music was sup- 
plied by Frank Wojnicki who brought his fantastic ste- 
reo system powered by a gasoline generator. The music 
was so great and loud that we were tempted to put a 
sign out on the main highway — "BOSTON" Live! 
$14.00 a head -- but we decided not to. 

The afternoon was devoted to drinking, swimming, lis- 
tening to music, playing football, throwing frisbees 
around .... and other activities. At four o'clock Ray 
Bissaillon, Tom McShane, Neil Segala, and Mike Soha 
manned the grills and supplied the gang with an un- 
limited amount of food. Bill Brule and Scott Decker 
handled the taps. 

The highlight of the evening was the bonfire in which 
an effigy of Mr. Cardillo was burned at the stake! After 
his ashes had floated away and the moon and stars had 
come out, everyone grew tired and retired into sleeping 
bags around the fire. Everyone enjoyed talking, listen- 
ing to old stories, and hearing new jokes. Sometime in 
the early morning, fireworks went off — and then the 
music started again. The sun, just clearing the trees; 
the sky, blue as could be; the air, clean and fresh ... 
and beer for breakfast!! 

Over half the seniors attending the picnic had spent the 
night, and in the morning everyone gathered around 
what was left of the fire and talked for awhile. Slowly 
the group dispersed, some helping to clean up the area 
-- and then it was over. The fun that we all had during 
these two memorable days added up to another unfor- 
gettable graduation activity.

Revcxend Piexce, Hx. Rowett, membexs of the

A young pexson can considex himself educated, 
not when he xeceives a diploma fox completing 
school, but when he axxives at that point in life 
whexe he stops answexing question* and bejgi.nl> 
questioning answexs. 

We one at that point now. We no longex believe 
all we axe told. We have begun to make decision* 
and to develop owl own txaits. Whethex we bail 
ox succeed— we at least have the Reeling of 
knowing what we txied to accomplish. 

Now even though we six togethex as a gxoup, 
dxessed the same--pexhaps even Meeting the same-- 
we axe not the same. We may not even wish to be 
the same. We have bxoken away fxom the cxowd— 
we axe individuals. As individuals we must 
begin to make decisions fax ouxselves. We must 
keep txying no mattex how many times we {ait. 
We have leaxned an impoxtant lesson— not 
evexything can be handed to us. "Even though 
the doox is unlocked, it may take a tittle push 
to open it." McCann has unlocked the doox fax 
us, we must push it open. 

Qux instxuctoxs at McCann have taught us also that 
we must woxk haxd fax what we hope to achieve. 
Enfant and couxage axe not enough, howevex, 
without puxpose and dixection. 

That is what we have xeceived these past faux 
yeaxs at McCann, puxpose and dixection. Each one 
has had to decide his own puxpose, but we have 
had many hands pointing us in the xight dixection. 

To oux paxents, we owe love and gxatitude fax 
shaxing with us oux successes and helping us 
thxough oux faJULuxes with undexstanding . 



To oux teachexs we must expxess appxeciation fax 
giving us the knowledge and skills to take oux 
place with confidence in oux chosen fields of 
woxk. They have been patient with us; always 
encouxaging us to do oux vexy best. 



Cextainly we axe hexe tonight to xeminisce the 
past, to look ovex the old and to xealize what we 
have accomplished. Hingled with oux toughts of 
the past howevex, axe vexy deep concexns about 
the pxesent and the futuxe. I feel as Vatxick 
Henxy did when he sold, "I have but one lamp by 
which my feet axe guided, and that is the lamp 
of expedience. I know of no way of judging of 
the futuxe, but by the past. 



We may no longex go to school, but the leaxning 
pxocess nevex ends. We continue to leaxn, to gxow 
and to achieve. We must push ouxselves to do 
what each of us knows he can do. In the woxds 
of John Venvex: 



"Reach fax the Heavens, and hope 
fax the futuxe, 

And all that we can be, not 
what we axe." 



With thoughts of the past and high hopes fox 
the futuxe, on behalf of the Class of 1977, 
I bid you welcome.

ADVISORS COMMENT 



The 1977 ARTISAN will be a memorable yearbook. Not only 
will it call back many memories for the Class of '77, but 
it will also be especially memorable for me--it was the 
first yearbook in my ten years as advisor to the ARTISAN 
which was planned, designed, and executed entirely by the 
yearbook staff. For the first time I functioned solely as 
an advisor--so beware, future classes, I liked the feeling! 

To publish a yearbook is no small undertaking; it involves 

tedious and 
tribute to the 
of all who worked 
brought 
the 1977 
future

I would like to thank all the members of the faculty and staff, you know who 
' you are. . . for helping us compile this yearbook. I would also like to thank 
' the seniors and underclassmen who were not on the staff but who solicited ads. 

The yearbook could not have been so excellent if it had not been for the 
' : numerous small favors of many of our staff members. 

I must give special thanks to Lanie Allegra, Anna Lopardo, and Heidi Hoellerich 
I for showing up at practically all the meetings; to Chris Comeau and Val Bushika 
- for doing a fantastic job with the art work; to Dave Galinski for helping us 

get over one thousand dollars in ads and taking charge of the sign page. 

I am extremely appreciative of Anne Cichy for her devoted hours of composing, 

typing and just good plain advice. And to Scott Decker for being such a loyal 
•> assistant editor and for taking so many professional pictures. Finally the 

entire staff would like to thank our advertisers and sponsors.

You are holding in your hands over ten months of hard work and I am finally 
convinced that this book has a personallity all its own. This demanding book 
has taken me from nearly every business in Northern Berkshire to the North 
Adams Dump. That's right — a custodian accidentally threw out our equipment, 
a lot of pictures, the sign page and a couple other pages--but luckily I made 
a fast trip to the dump and recovered everything. 

This diary of memories has brought myself and its other victims to this school 
nearly every Monday and Wednesday evenings! This book still holds us captive 
in the Student Lounge through June and into July. All in all I think it was 
worth it, and yes! I would certainly do it again. When I think about it we 
progressed from a seventy page book scattered with pictures, devoid of art work 
and copy and most of all student participation to this one hundred and twelve- 



page masterpiece. This book gave me a chance.

and thoughts, and take a shot at what I hope to make a career of. I am writing
